Chesterton on committees

"I've searched all the parks in all the cities and found no statues of committees."
- G.K. Chesterton

Need I say more?

Vance Havener said of committees: : "Little groups of the unfit appointed by the unwilling to do the unnecessary". Don't know that I agree, but it is a common assesment. I tho't maybe I'd found a statue of a committee in Little Rock, AR--the Little Rock Nine. But, if they were a committee, they were an unintentional one.

Thanks, E. Turner. THat may overstate it a little for me, but it's certainly in the right direction.
